Exploring what it means to create a nation, A Museum in Baghdad transfers to the Kiln Theatre in 2020. Following the lives of two women who want to uncover the meaning behind Iraqi identities in different eras, A Museum in Baghdad examines the impact of stereotypes and preserving cultures in a story of desperate choices and treasured history.
The cast of A Museum in Baghdad stars David Birrell as Professor Leonard Woolley, Houda Echouafni as Layla Hassan, Emma Fielding as Gertrude Bell, Ali Gadema as Kidnapper/Prime Minister, Rendah Heywood as Ghalia Hussein, Zed Josef as Salim, Nadi Kemp-Sayfi as Nasiya, Debbie Korley as Sam York, Riad Richie as Mohammed Abdullah and Rasoul Saghir as Abu Zaman.
A Museum in Baghdad tells the lives of two women seeking to uncover a revived sense of identity and nationhood in Iraq. Audiences meet British archaeologist Gertrude Bell in 1926 as she founds a museum and a woman named Ghalia Hussein who is reopening the museum 80 years after.
While their stories are decades apart, the same questions remain. Whose culture is being preserved in a museum? Who is the museum for? Why do museums matter when there are life-or-death issues around them?
